Georgia has always held a bit of mystery for me. It’s where I was born, but I never really lived there. What I love most about Georgia is that depending on where you visit, you are always going to find modern mixed in with traditional southern charm. Each city has a unique signature, and these hotels do a great job showing the many sides of Georgia.
Like the area of town suggests, Midtown is the mid-point in Atlanta. The Atlanta Marriott Midtown Suites is a laid back southern smooth hotel situated in the middle of the city and its many suburbs. The casual hotel has an excellent staff and amenities for the serious business traveler and the family on vacation. All the rooms are suite-style which makes it a perfect stay for large groups. Its central location allows easy access to Piedmont Park and the Atlanta Aquarium.

A modern structure in midtown isn’t out-of-place. In fact, it has become a draw for tourist and locals alike. The Hyatt Atlanta Midtown offers guests state of the art rooms with slick gray tones marble tubs and high thread count sheets. The hotel’s neighbors are CNN and Coca Cola. After you spend time exploring Atlanta, return to the hotel and enjoy a craft cocktail in the lobby’s famous Juniper Bar. The huge hotel is exceptional in making each guest feel special and at home.
East of Midtown is the famous Atlanta suburb, Buckhead. Known for its trendy restaurants, chic hotels and upscale shopping, Buckhead is the place to see and be seen in Atlanta. At the center of the madness is the InterContinental Buckhead. The enormous hotel has incredible views of Atlanta from each spacious, comfortable room. It’s one of those hotels where you want to stay and enjoy. From the salt water pool and jacuzzis to the spa and award-winning restaurants, the Buckhead staple rivals any stay and play resort in the south.

If the big city isn’t your scene, consider a trip to Savannah, Georgia. Savannah, like Atlanta, is the perfect blend of old and new. With its walking-friendly city and picturesque tree-lined streets, the many outdoor activities make it a draw for families all year round. Located in the center of the world’s largest historical district is the Hilton Savannah DeSoto Hotel. Its old southern charm and luxury are on display in the hotel’s lobby. The rooms are massive and cozy. The staff takes pride in making you feel like part of the family.
Savannah Riverfront Casual
On the edge of the historic district, next to the Savannah River is the Savanna Marriott Riverfront Hotel. It is a modern hotel with comfortable decor and a family friendly atmosphere. Just steps from the hotel, walk the bustling riverfront and grab a drink and enjoy the boats as they sail by on the lazy river. Enjoy the nightlife as the boardwalk offers entertainment for adult and families.

I never spent too much time in Atlanta and very little in Savannah. When I worked on a roadshow we played a number of Georgia towns with the early parts of our tour often starting in or near Georgia. Our closing date was always in Gainesville, GA. Not sure why, but that’s the way we always wrapped up our tours. I like the northern part of Georgia with the mountains and all.
Tossing It Out
I like the mountains, too.
